Back in July, we told you about Catholic Housing Services (CHS) acquiring the former Thunderbird/Fremont Inn motel site to convert the property into low income housing. Yesterday at the site, Mayor Mike McGinn announced a $27 million dollar levy to fund the construction of seven new apartments for low income families, seniors, and veterans citywide, including the Aurora site.
CHS will receive $1.6 million dollars “to construct permanent housing with supportive services for chronically homeless individuals, including veterans,” according to the statement issued by the Mayor’s office. Eight of the 71 units will be set aside for veterans. CHS will also provide onsite services to residents.
